GSL for Factor

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
Factor is a new language that is gaining momentum in the open source community. A few of the core members were in town visiting after the creator Slava gave a Google Tech Talk. Over beers and pizza at the Lucky Lab NW the Factor guys told me how FFI works and we had a binding to a Bessel function working within half an hour. It's that frickin' easy! 

Here is the gitweb for factor-gsl, which currently has support for all Bessel functions. 

To clone master repo:

git clone http://leto.net/code/factor-gsl.gi

Example usage: 

( scratchpad ) USE: gsl.sf.bessel
( scratchpad ) 10 gsl_sf_bessel_J0 .
-0.2459357644513484

There are tests also, but the docs are still a bit rough.
